A Night With "Northern Chaos"

This past Saturday night we had a get together with friends Betsy and Kevin, their daughter Schuyler and Kerry and Storm and their boys Nick, Alex and Max ( Northern Chaos in my favorite blogs links). Kerry and Storm have been in town for the past week from Eagle River, AK for family reunions and the what not and we were able to snag them for a night to catch up!

We had a blast! The kids (5 boys and one girl, ranging in age from 7 to 2) had such a great time playing together, jumping on the trampoline and toasting marshmallows on the firepit and Betsy, Kerry and I spent time catching up while the guys talked about god knows what.

A little shy at first but it didn't take them long to come off the steps and blend into the fun!

Poor Max! Bumped his head on a table but didn't let it phase him ONE BIT! He told Storm that he didn't cry and just said "Ouch!"

Roasting marshmallows in August (who would think that was possible in St. Louis?)

L to R - Max (3), Alex (5), Nick (7), Schuyler (6), Mason (2) & Jack (3 1/2)

Good friends, Imo's Pizza, a little wine and beer, and awesome weather equated to a WONDERFUL time for all of us. Kerry & Storm, thanks for making time for us in your busy schedule so that we could see you guys and Bets & Kevin, thanks for letting us invade your house, it was fun!
